Seely Primary Admission Arrangements
The Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception Year)
Children are accepted into the Nursery soon after their third birthday and are offered either a morning or afternoon place. We provide an extended entitlement of a three hour session for all three and four year olds.
For nursery children entering our nursery, a meeting with parents and carers is planned and children can make several visits to prepare them for starting their part time nursery placement.
Statutory School Place (Reception Year)
Attending the nursery when a child is aged three or four does not guarantee a statutory school place at age five. All parents and carers must apply for a school place through the Nottingham City Council co-ordinated application and admission process to request a place at the school they would like to attend, even if it is Seely Primary School.
An application form, guide to admissions and individual advice on the admissions process will be sent to parents and carers in the school year before the child reaches the age of five. Please ask if you are unsure as we can provide support if required.
Children are admitted to full time education at the beginning of the academic year (September) in which they are five.
A meeting for carers is held to explain the changes from nursery to reception. Parents do have the option of deferring their child’s entry until the beginning of the term after the child’s fifth birthday.
